Elon Musk's 'Not A Flamethrower' Put To The Test Against Real Flamethrower
Elon Musk: he's a rather out there kinda bloke, right?
And most recently he smoked weed live on an internet chat show. Safe to say, the guy doesn't give AF.
In his latest escapade the tech billionaire bagged himself a casual $10million (£7.6m) from selling out of all his 20,000 'flamethrowers' that apparently aren't actually flamethrowers.
Now two fearless looking guys from DriveTanks.com have put his (not a) flamethrower to the test by comparing the $500 (£380) piece of equipment to the real deal.
It's pretty fucking mental. Definitely not one to try at home.
Todd, who works at DriveTanks explains they will be doing a comparison with M9 Vietnam Era Flamethrower (the serious one), the XM42 (sounds serious but has a shark sticker of some description on the side of it which makes it look all the more innocent) and Elon Musk's (not a) Flamethrower.
After opening the 'plain Jane' black and white box, sounding very unenthusiastic it was time for the fun to begin.
Talking about Musk's device, Todd explained: "It looks like at this point everything is in tact," well, we'd hope so considering.
They went out to the range armed with the three weapons with their target being a burn pile - which is essentially just a pile of trees and shit.

Todd had to visibly walk over to the burn pile in order to ignite it. Next came the flamethrower that resembles a child's bath toy. Looks like Todd's helper was in control of that one.
Then the proper bad boy was uncovered and oh boy did it make Musk's look, well, pretty pathetic.
Here's the evidence:
Afterwards, a rather charred looking Todd, said: "Well, Elon Musk, that's a flamethrower. That's how we do it here in Texas, that's how we do it here at DriveTanks.com."
What a show off.
After their little experiment, Todd said: "We thought there would be a comparison but there really wasn't a comparison."
And his helper, quite creepily added: "When you gotta set somebody on fire, go for the real thing, flamethrower."
What a solid piece of advice.
